The Uralchem group sent humanitarian aid to Nigeria, RIA Novosti reports. The African country will receive more than 34,000 tons of fertilizers. They have already been loaded onto a ship in Ventspils, Latvia, and the ship is on its way to Nigeria.

Vladimir Putin promised to supply Russian food free of charge to six African countries: Burkina Faso, Zimbabwe, Mali, Somalia, Central African Republic and Eritrea. Each will receive about 50 tons of grain. Russia also covers all transport costs. The President stated this during the plenary session of the Russia-Africa forum in St. Petersburg.

In 2022, Moscow exported more than 11 million tons of grain to Africa, and in six months of 2023 - about ten million more tons of grain.
